Amazing, simply amazing. My hubby and I are huge foodies so food was a very important element of our wedding. I asked my cousin who has worked in the DC wedding industry for 25+ years who the best caterer was, and Debbie from Windows Catering was his first recommendation. We could not believe how good EVERYTHING was when we went in for our tasting...not one thing tasted like "wedding" food. We compared it to one other vendor (who had the same prices) and there was absolutely no comparison. We went table to table to greet our guests after the entree was served, and I can honestly tell you that every plate was practically licked clean - and it wasn't because there wasn't enough food! Now, don't let me forget our dessert bar. They had a peanut butter cupcake which was honestly one of the most delicious desserts I have ever had in my life, and I'm not usually even a cupcake person. And one last thing - Debbie was just amazing the day of my wedding. She had everything taken care of, not one thing was out of place and she told me it was my day and I had to enjoy my wedding and not to worry about a single thing since everything was taken care of. SYNOPSIS - you can't go wrong with them. They've been doing this so long that their website is www.catering.com!!

Windows was absolutely wonderful to work with for our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding on June 4 at Stone Tower Winery! Their extreme professionalism and knowledge of the wedding industry shined through in all of our interactions with them, and the final results at the wedding were perfect. Lauren provided wonderful recommendations from the hors d’oeuves to the main course. When we walked into the tasting, she had everything elegantly setup as though it was the day. She provided linen and china selections to compliment our daughter and son-in-laws’ vision. The food was amazing and the decor (linens, flatware, stemware, plates, etc.) was a notch above. Lauren and Debbie did a great job working with the staff at Stone Tower Winery. No wonder Windows is one of their preferred vendors. We had a traditional cookie table and Lauren did a fabulous job with presentation. The wedding cake was devine… I don’t think there was a crumb left. Anyone who is looking for an all-inclusive caterer that will provide great food, beautiful decor and exceptional assistance all at a reasonable price should definitely book Windows :) Thank you Lauren and Debbie !Sent on 06/27/2017

Pick Windows. They are the best! I've worked with them on my work's 600 person Gala at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium and at our office christmas party of 65 at our boss's house. They now even cater our 20 person board meetings. So of course I had to use them for my wedding at Top of the Town. Chris Dunn and Aaron Cartier are a blast to work with. They have so many great ideas and totally take care of every single detail. At my wedding, I wasn't going to see the reception space till after the guests had arrived so I am so grateful that I could put all the decor in their hands to put out. Most importantly, the food was AMAZING. All my guests raved about the food. They loved the ice cream bar. And the wedding cake is was the best wedding cake I'd ever tasted. They can do everything and anything. Definitely pick Windows and contact Chris & Aaron.
There are a lot of good caterers in the Washington area, but there are just a few that can be said to be truly spectacular ... and Windows is one of them. You just cannot go wrong on food by Windows.
I had the privilege of working with Windows Catering at a wedding in November 2016 and everything was perfect! The food tasted great, the buffet display was lovely and inviting, the staff was pleasant and professional. It was also a joy to work with Cynthia and Ashley leading up to the wedding. They were both helpful at the walkthrough, with menu choices, seating chart and ensuring that everything ran on schedule. Thank you for such a wonderful job! Look forward to working with you in the future.
Windows is a top choice for us to recommend to our brides. Their event managers are on top of details and help keep everyone on the same page in planning stages. Their food is fantastic and their staff is phenomenal during the events.
